R Program to create a vector using : operator and seq() function

How to create a vector using: operator and seq() function

Here we are explaining how to write an R program to create a vector using: operator and seq() function. Here we are using the built-in function seq for this calculation. The numbers are passed to these functions directly here. To generating regular sequences seq is a standard generic with a default method. 

seq(from, to, by, length.out, along.with) 
 

Where from and to are the beginning and terminating the number of the sequence, by is the increment of the given sequence it is calculated as ((to-from) /(length.out-1)).And the argument length.out decides the total length of the sequence and along. with will Outputs a sequence of the same length as the input vector.

How to create a vector using: operator and seq() function in R Program

Given below are the steps which are used in the R program to create a vector using: operator and seq() function. In this R program, we directly give the values to built-in functions. And print the function result. Here we are using variable A for the newly created vector using: operator. And B, C are the newly created vectors using the seq() method.

ALGORITHM

STEP 1: Use the operator: for new vector creation as A=1:10

STEP 2: Print the vector A

STEP 3: Use the method seq() for new vector creation as B= seq(1, 3, by=0.3) 

STEP 4: Print the vector B

STEP 5: Use the method seq() for new vector creation as C = seq(1, 5, length.out = 6) 

STEP 6: Print the vector C

R Source Code

                                          A = 1:10
print("New vector using : operator-")
print(A)
print("New vector using seq() function-")
print("Specify step size:")
B= seq(1, 3, by=0.3)  
print(B)
print("Specify length of the vector:")
C = seq(1, 5, length.out = 6)
print(C)
